  1. I’m so happy you are podcasting frequently again! You keep me company on my morning walk. And thanks for the call-out on my QC quilts! PS Your front yard resembles mine….

  2. I love the Sine idea. Sign me up! I think 3 dollars is not enough!
    Re your comment about knitting being meditative and quilting being active, I have another viewpoint! I have a machine and do some machine piecing, but most of my piecing is hand piecing. I find that to be very meditative! I can be in the same room as my family, and I organize everything in shoe box lids, so I get all set up and can just sew, sew, sew. Hand piecing/quilting vs. machine piecing/quilting, maybe a subject for a zine!
    Love your podcasts, and I’m looking forward to seeing you on the Patchwork and Prose zoom!

  3. I’m so glad you are back to podcasting regularly — and so glad that I left your podcast in my list in iTunes. It was a very pleasant surprise when you “reappeared”. I do so enjoy your podcast, just the simple talking about what you are doing. It’s like having a friend in for coffee in my BeeHive (a.k.a. quilting studio). And thank you for mentioning that Quilting…for the rest of us was back. I would have never known if you had not given the update. Keep up the good work and I’ll keep listening.

  4. You mentioned a quilt binding tutorial from a Craftsy class – I took that class, too, but then I found tutorial by Jenny Doan called
    “The Ultimate Binding Tutorial”. It is fantastic!!

    FYI – I have listened to most of your podcasts and enjoy your ramblings.

    I do get notified of your new posts by email.

    1. Collards are greens that are popular in the Southern U.S. They grow best in cold or cool weather, and cook up beautifully sauteed in a little olive oil. I’m trying to think of something comparable–they’re brassicas like cabbage, but their leaves are longer, greener and a bit more tender.

  5. I am sorry but I just listened to your podcasts from this year. I am not sure why but for some reason I just stopped listening to all of my podcasts for several months. The bug has finally bitten me again though, and I am all caught up with my favorite quilting podcasts.
    I am so happy you posted more podcasts. Yours has always been my favorite. Here it is September now and I am wondering, will you will be posting any more? I really miss you!! I really am a faithful Frances fan! I have listened to you from the beginning and don’t want to see your podcast come to an end. I also love the QuiltFiction podcast! I really hope you decide to continue to story of Friendship Album 1933. I remember you mentioned doing that in one of your last podcasts.

    I am very interested in the Quilt Zine (again, late to the party). I saw a pic of it posted but I can’t find anything telling how to order one. Did you get those started? If so, I definitely want to buy them.
    Anyway, enough rambling. I just wanted to say I love you and all you do for the quilting world! I hope you continue for a long, long time. Give Travis, the quilt dog a kiss for me.

    1. Hi, Cyndi–How good to hear from you! Yes, I’m about to post a new podcast. I’m not posting as regularly, but I don’t want to stop completely. I’m also working on some new stuff for the Quiltfiction podcast. More on that later this year. You can find the zines here:

      Hope all is well with you! Travis is sending kisses back!
